2Shi- I work 10 hour days (closer to 12 much of the time) so I have offset my lighting so that when I am home for lunch and home from work my lights are on. My tank lights are on from 12:00pm to 11:00pm. My plants can handle that so I have not had to reduce. I leave for work close to noon so I only get to see them briefly at that time, but I do get to see them wake up. My house is prettttttty dang dark (I live in a flippin cave it seems) so they do not get a lot of natural light otherwise.

20 Long: 1 Juli Corycat, 4 red line tetra's, 3 Von Rio tetra, 1 Flame tetra 1 Rubber lipped pleco, 1 Curviceps cichlid, 1 blue tetra.

5.5ga- 1 Beautiful Betta, 1 persnickety snail

I have green things with leafs.

Note's from Bradley: "Meow." "Yes I did say meow, and I meant it."

Note from Kiera: "Can I Play with it? Can I play with it? Can I play with it? Please? Please? Please?"
